If you are looking to match pace with the trend turnovers of the season, your wardrobe will be incomplete without this season’s must-have silhouette: the corset. Loved by It-girls and starlets alike, this Victorian era staple has been reimagined in fresh, imaginative ways for contemporary times.

Ahead, all the style notes from Bollywood’s best names on how to wear yours this season:

Khushi Kapoor

For her 21st birthday, the young debutante reached for this attention-making silhouette in the form of a blush pink slip dress with corset-style boning to accentuate the waist and a draped cowl neckline that she styled sans accessories.

Ananya Panday

Or if you are looking to dial up the drama, you will want to team this silhouette with another of the season’s highly coveted trends: all things sheer. Panday offered up a peekaboo flash of skin with a sheer corset and a figure-skimming midi skirt.

Jacqueline Fernandez

Those looking to nail multiple trends in one look will also want to take style cues from Fernandez and the sheer co-ord set that won her vote for a day out, featuring a boned corset top and It-girl-approved biker shorts in a coordinated print.

Malaika Arora

‘90s girls, rejoice! Arora has been flying the flag for the return of the decade’s sartorial hallmarks. Case in point: this corset-detailed ensemble doused in leopard print and topped off with chunky chain link jewellery for maximum impact.

Janhvi Kapoor

If you are looking to take this silhouette to your workwear wardrobe, perhaps Kapoor can interest you in creative layering? Her all-white look pairs a lace corset under a blazer and skirt set with a thigh-high slit that fits the memo for après-work drinks with the crew.
